10 Affordable & Easy Ways to Add Lighting to a Closet Without Wiring

I’ve always preferred living in pre-1940s buildings for all their historical and architectural charm (so far, six different places and counting, ranging from 1907 through 1931).

An Eclectic Chicago Reno Is Effortlessly Elegant — House Tour

Name: Kira Cole and two cats
Location: Gold Coast — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,080 square feet
Years Lived In: 8 months, owned

My home was built in 1892, originally as a single family. In 1978, it was renovated into condo units. I actually grew up in the unit below, so I was very familiar with the building and neighbors when purchasing! When I first got my hands on it, it had not been renovated (not even paint touch-ups) since the 1978 renovation, so it was in serious need of love. I was inspired by the high ceilings and what was left of the original crown molding and trim. Currently, I live there with my two cats (who love racing down the hall) and am frequently visited by my family who continues to live in the unit below me.
